On today's podcast, I read read my obituary for Aaron Swartz, and the afterword he wrote for my upcoming novel, Homeland . I met Aaron when he was 14 or 15. He was working on XML stuff (he co-wrote the RSS specification when he was 14) and came to San Francisco often, and would stay with Lisa Rein, a friend of mine who was also an XML person and who took care of him and assured his parents he had adult supervision.

Joshua Gay's Grand Jury Subpoena for USA v. Aaron Swartz
Topics: aaronsw, aaronswartz, grandjury
Throughout human history, people have lived in societies without formalized government. We argue that the theory of anarchism presents a productive framework for analyzing decentralized societies. Anarchism encompasses a broad array of interrelated principles for organizing societies without the centralization of authority. Moreover, its theory of history emphasizes an ongoing and active resistance to concentrations of power. We present an anarchist analysis of the development of social power,...

Aaron Swartz and Brett Bonfield (a librarian) discuss ways they can help to eliminate corruption in government. At the time, Swartz was beginning to assist with the formation of  Change Congress , which seeks to reduce the influence of lobbyists and PACs, end earmarks, support public finance for political campaigns, and promote transparency within congress. Bonfield was in favor of making it easier to prosecute corrupt officials by creating technology that ensured anonymity for whistleblowers...

This is the livestream footage of the Aaron Swartz memorial in mp4 container from Democracy Now. The told stories about Aaron are very inspiring. The way people have come together with a common goal as a result of losing him may prove to be his final great achievement. This memorial is a huge expression of that and deserves preservation for all who would gain inspiration from it. In case it becomes no longer available via the stream at...
